I agree. How absurd to suggest that Phish's song wringing skills are anywhere in the same league as the Beatles. Not that the Beatles ever wrong bad songs (of course they did), but to say that Let it Be is a "cheesy" song!? I couldn't read past that point.

Exactly my point . You instantly send away the people you are trying to convince . Everyone can have their opinion ( there are people on the forum who don't like St. Stephen, or Dark Star ), but you shut doors by insulting much beloved songs There is a point to be made that Phish's songs are better than their reputation, but I think in their case, it would be better to go to their strengths like their improvisations . I think judging Phish by song writing, would be like judging the Beatles by their improvisational abilities ...
One of the things about the Grateful Dead,is that they, could jam, AND write pretty good, soulful songs , rare indeed .
